Ralph was a veteran and served this country in the Army Air Force Corps as a weatherman. He then met and married Jo Jacqueline Burch and had two children with her: Kathy Stoughton Chavez and Keith Stoughton.
Ralph first worked on the Boeing aircrafts until he got a job opportunity working for NASA to help design the Apollo rockets. After the success of the Apollo program he was offered a job as an electrician and worked on the Navy battleships in Long Beach, California.
Ralph enjoyed spending time with his family and we are happy he is reunited with his spouse in heaven whom he dearly missed. He is survived by his two children and his grandchildren, which are Candice Chavez West, Kristy Stoughton, Kimberly Stoughton Zettel, Kevin Stoughton, Karen Stoughton Beyer, Mindy Stoughton Ludgate, Michael Stoughton, Mark Stoughton, and Kenneth Stoughton. And his great grandchildren, Ryan West, Breezy West, Aaron Stoughton, Bryan Zettel, Alyssa Zettel, Jackson Stoughton, Connor Stoughton, Carson Stoughton, Gavin Beyer, Jayda Beyer, Tylee Beyer, and Lily Ludgate.
